Getting to Cottesloe

1. Taxis at Perth Airport

Taxi ranks are located outside the Terminals, and commissionaires are on hand to assist passengers during peak periods.

There is a A$2.00 ground transport charge for taxis leaving each of the terminals, which is applied to improving ground transport infrastructure. The fare will vary of course, depending on your destination and the location of the property. A single fare to Cottesloe, for example, will cost around A$55.00-$60.00. There is no extra charge for luggage.
